* DoingInTheWizard: According to Dr. Endelmann, Talbot's lycanthropy is a case of self-hypnosis combined with his skulls applying pressure to his brain. After easing the said pressure with experimental surgery [[Spoiler:Talbot is cured! [[AbbottAndCostelloeMeetFrankenstein At least until the next movie]].]]

* HopeSpot: Out of five movies, this is the only one that ends well for poor LawrenceTalbot (yes, by Talbot standards being forced to shoot the man who cured your nightmarish curse to prevent him from suffering the same fate constitutes ending well). He's cured, and he has a love interest. By the sequel though, he's relapsed, and she's nowhere to be found. Probably dead.

'''''House of Dracula''''' is the last "serious" Universal MonsterMash film. It is from the year 1945.

After the events of ''Film/HouseOfFrankenstein'', the yet again revived WolfMan Larry Talbot is still seeking release from his condition. He ends up in Dr. Edelmann's place for treatment and accidentally finds FrankensteinsMonster in the caves under the house. Count {{Dracula}} is also there to find a cure for vampirism, but it is only a ruse to get near the nurse Morella, upon whom he has set his sights.
